On Aug. 27, Mrs. Joyce Hale's seventh hour science class performed a skittles experiment to help introduce the scientific method.
Using four different cups, they put different liquids one in each cup. These liquids are Water, Tonic-water, Twist-up, and Vinegar.
Every group had different color skittles than the other groups. Mrs. Hale picked out the different liquids by looking around her house. She had only done the experiment before with water. These groups were groups of four picked by the children.
Some of the group/s suggestions included using chocolate candies and using different types of pop.
